    Memo from Paddy O'Brien 2009 - "when a player is lifted and dropped from a height with no regard for a players safety a red card should be issued"

    I don't see how anybody could possibly argue that what Warburton done was not a red card in that context.

      Agreed with you busbi but some will argue the point

          It was a red but feel sorry for Wales all the same.

            I would have proffered to see Wales go thro but they did have opportunities to win and didn't take them. Jones would not take on the responsibility of the drop attempt. Better to try even if you fail than not to try.He would not or could not take the chance. can't believe that France are in the final after losing two matches and playing like crap. That's an indictment of the tournament and it's organization that that can happen.

              I've added a third option.

              Yes, I agree that spear tackles should be red cards, BUT this shouldn't have been a red card because the other spear tackles in the tournament were deemed to be yellow card offences.

                Deemed by other refs, but corrected by citing panels. Bans mean the refs were wrong...

                  I dont agree that 3rd option is valid.

                      From the directive of Paddy O'Brien it's a red. Don't think there was any malice in it but AR had no choice as he saw it. I'd say if it was a touch judge who called it it would have been a yellow. Tough break for Wales.

                        On the basis of consistency you are correct. But?? Just because the refs in prior games made the wrong call should the ref today have made a wrong call as well?

                          It was a penalty (as the laws state).

                          As regards cards and what colour? All previous decisions have resulted in yellow cards. So now we have a reffing inconsistency.

                          We also have another problem. Mr. O'Brien is an observer and meant to advise refs; he does not have the authority nor brief to change the laws. The law states 'from a height'; this wasn't so the advice (diktat?) is irrelevant.

                          Campese's criticism can also be brought against this ref. Another ref probably (from their past interpretations/actions) would have made a different decision, probably altering the result. So maybe he's right - Refs having too much influence on the result.

                          Who's reffing the final?

                            All I want is consistency in a world gone mad.

                              And they could have corrected this, and have been consistent.
